A
Glossary ref
Gloss
Spacetrue
tConcept
is considered to be glossary-ref
Gloss
tfully
defined
if its glossary-ref
Gloss
tdefining
characteristics
are sufficient to define it relative to its immediate supertype(s). A glossary-ref
Gloss
tConcept
which is not glossary-ref
Gloss
tfully
defined
is glossary-ref
Gloss
tPrimitive
and this is indicated by the value of the glossary-ref
Gloss
tdefinitionStatusId
field.

Example:

scg-expression
Concept
ShowParts
t
term
233604007|Pneumonia|
is a lung disease but unless glossary-ref
Gloss
tdefining
characteristics
are specified that effectively distinguish scg-expression
Concept
ShowParts
t
term
233604007|pneumonia|
from other lung diseases then it is regarded as a
Glossary ref
primitive
Glossary ref
Gloss
Spacetrue
tprimitive
Gloss
tConcept
.

If a

glossary-ref
Gloss
tConcept
is glossary-ref
Gloss
tprimitive
then the glossary-ref
Gloss
tdefining
characteristics
for that glossary-ref
Gloss
tConcept
are incomplete. It is not possible to automatically compute that a glossary-ref
Gloss
tConcept
represented as a glossary-ref
Gloss
tpostcoordinated
combination of several glossary-ref
Gloss
tConcepts
is or is not a glossary-ref
Gloss
tsubtype
of a particular
Glossary ref
primitive
Glossary ref
Gloss
Spacetrue
tprimitive
Gloss
tConcept
.

Example: The

glossary-ref
Gloss
tConcept
"lung disease" qualified by scg-expression
Concept
ShowParts
t
term
246075003|causative
agent|
= scg-expression
Concept
ShowParts
t
term
41146007|bacteria|
may be scg-expression
Concept
ShowParts
t
term
233604007|pneumonia|
but could also be "bronchitis."

In contrast if a

glossary-ref
Gloss
tConcept
is glossary-ref
Gloss
tfully
defined
it is possible to state that any glossary-ref
Gloss
tConcept
represented as a combination of the same glossary-ref
Gloss
tdefining
characteristics
is equivalent to or a glossary-ref
Gloss
tsubtype
of that glossary-ref
Gloss
tConcept
.

Example: Assume that the Scg expression

ShowPartsterm
Glossary ref
Concept
Gloss
Spacetrue
tConcept
Concept
t53084003|bacterial
pneumonia|
is glossary-ref
Gloss
tfully
defined
as scg-expression
Concept
ShowParts
t
term
312342009|infective
pneumonia|
with scg-expression
Concept
ShowParts
t
term
246075003|causative
agent|
= scg-expression
Concept
ShowParts
t
term
41146007|bacteria|
and that scg-expression
Concept
ShowParts
t
term
9861002|pneumococcus|
is a scg-expression
Concept
ShowParts
t
term
41146007|bacteria|
. It then follows that the post coordinated representation of scg-expression
Concept
ShowParts
t
term
233607000|pneumococcal
pneumonia|
as scg-expression
Concept
ShowParts
t
term

t
term
246075003|causative

ShowParts
t

is computably a glossary-ref
